Question about 1995 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

OK so I own a 95 VW Golf 2.0 manual trans. Once in a great while it severely jerks when I accelerate or maintain a constant speed. If I give the car A LOT of gas it doesnt do it, but will continue when I go back to maintaing constant speed. It will do it at any rate of speed. When I pop the clutch in and let the car coast, it stops doing it. Then it will just suddenly stop jerking for no reason that is apparent to me. Any ideas why it does this?

This can be caused by a faulty throttle position sensor (TPS). It will normally be found on the end of the throttle shaft oposite the cable connection. They are fairly simple to replace, and cost less than $50.

Vw automatic trans won't shift


The 01M and 09A automatic transmissions do not have a dipstick and procedure requires measuring and maintaining a specified ATF temperature (which is neither cold or hot, but in between) during the ATF level checking. Special Volkswagen tools are required for this operation and it is therefore recommended that ATF level checking on 01M/09A transmissions be left to an authorized VW dealer.
